        it's just this simple, Harden is the best offensive talent in the league, and the Jazz don't have the talent to compete in this series.

          jazz defense real stupid. Forcing harden right is counterproductive af. Most of harden's stepback are to the right so shading harden right is basically inviting him to take that shot. I would say force him left and make him either drive or take that lefty stepback which is wayy harder to make.

                  Donovan Mitchell should've been tasked with guarding Harden 1 on 1. They never had a chance, might as well see how good he is and get some more XP

                    Gobert is a beautiful defensive force during the regular season, but he always gets exposed in the playoffs. He cant guard the perimeter. He's trapped under the basket and his sphere of influence goes no farther than the block.

                      Basically just repeated what I said, but ok. Unless Utah can avoid both of those teams, they will never get past rd 2 with Rudy. They can not beat elite shooting, smallball teams.

                      BULLSHIT! He only gets exposed against the Warriors and Rockets duh?! Put him vs the rest of the league, casual NBA fans like yourself will see what true fans watch thoroughly during the regular season

                              All the teams, coaches, players, and the so called “analysts” are trying to figure out how to defend Harden and all these fucktards in the media and on the internet are pretending Harden is a nobody. Ridiculous...

                                  All these fucktards claiming that the Bucks figured out how to defend Harden as if Harden is a dumbass who won’t figure out new ways of crushing the “Bucks’ strategy”, or whoever’s anti-Harden strategy.

                                    Windhorst had better insights than Pippin. The Jazz are asking Gobert to guard both Cappella & Harden after the Jazz force him right and have the guard defending behind him. Harden is fantastic at decision making and execution.

                                      Just double team or triple team Harden and/or cp3 all night. Let the rest of the crew beat you. If you neuter James Harden, I am sure there are ways to win a basketball game against the rockets. Look at the thunder! They run transition that are fast enough that no one can stop them. Hands down. Have you tried that, Utah? If you don’t win transition game by 27 points. Don’t expect to win. Think about the times when you beat the warriors by 30, 18, and 40 points! Offense matters a lot against a team like this. It doesn’t matter how much you level up your defense or how much better you convert your threes. It’s about dominating your possession count, boards, fast break points (make it 2.7 times more if your average is 10 points a game). Make 19 threes. Those should be your game plan!

                                              Harden is an overrated hack. Call the DARN travel and stop giving him those phantom fouls... he's average AT best!!

                                              Rubio needs to either crowd and force Harden right a bit more or play his drive and give up the jumper. No in between.

                                                    Well if you iso 99% of the time when you're in the game (while also playing garbage minutes just to get his stats) and take every shot and on top of that get freethrows whenever someone breathes on you, of course you're going to talk bout how to play defense on harden w/o actually being able to play defense on Harden. Giannis gets beat up in the paint and still dominates then he'll turn around and lock you up.

                                                      It's funny. I don't see segment after segment dedicated to how to stop Giannis. Only MVP Harden.

                                                        Maybe because Giannis will give you 27points at 58% with 13reb and 6 assists in his bad day, whilst being a defensive monster and there is nothing you can really do about it. On the other hand reducing Harden's 36 pts on 44% while being essentially a non factor on defense can win you the game.

                                                              Because of James Harden and Chris Paul's ability to keep Capela in play. It's 3 against 1

                                                            Gotta trap Harden at the top of the key, send an extra defender on his drives; in essence play him to get the ball out of his hands. If PJ tucker and EG gonna drop 25 plus to beat you... fine. No longer should they force him right with a running head start or play him straight up... they don’t have the personnel. They gotta defend him like the MVP he is. Bracket guard him

The Cavs big 3 that year was Lebron, Kyrie and Love compared to the Rockets big 3 Harden, Gordon and Anderson. Harden carried the Rockets that year and he still didn't win MVP because Russel was having a 'historic season' with his big 3 being himself, Adams and Oladipo with a 6th seed. He was 2 rebounds off from averaging a triple double that year too! This year Hardens having a 'historic season' but Giannis should win it because his team has the better record? LOL. The hate for Harden is real @
